My name is Lisa Corroll.
I am an ofsted registered childminder in the EN5 High Barnet area.
I work as part of a team with another childminder and assistant which our previous and current families have found extremely reassuring.
We can provide care for your child that is stimulating , educating , nurturing. Safe and fun with a purpose built playroom that has direct access to the garden and an under cover outside learning area giving access to outdoors even when the weather is bad.
We try to create a good balance between outings, indoor and outdoor activities as well as focused activities.
We regularly attend local playgroups, parks and open spaces in the local area and are members at Willows Farm and Paradise wildlife park.We have recently starting spending time in the woods taking basic equipment with us allowing the children quality time in the real outdoors to help build their knowledge and understanding of the real world.
We work to the development matters scheme and follow the guidelines of the EYFS framework ensuring your child is regularly observed and that their next steps of development are followed through.
I currently do school pick ups from Whitings Hill School and am within close proximity of this school.
We like to provide a home from home environment that shows affection, inclusion and nurture for your child where your children are happy and well cared for giving them the best opportunity to thrive.
We can also offer a pick up and drop off service if required and currently collect from different points in High Barnet.
I currently work off an online system called Babysdays that creates daily diaries and updates of what we get up to during our days with simple notifications to an app that’s downloadable to most smart phones which is a real success with parents and ofsted ensuring that parents are kept in the loop daily.
We have recently had Ofsted inspections which have found us securely good in all areas and meeting all ofsted requirements expected.
We offer some pick up and drop off services in the morning and evening that could possibly be discussed if needed.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like any other information regarding the service I am providing or to come for a visit.
I have various different experiences in working with children ranging from being a TA working with all years from nursery up to year 6, and play service provider for a large London borough but most importantly being a Mother myself.
I have worked and supported children of all different academic and social levels.

We've been with Lisa for three years now - first with my eldest who started days before his first birthday and now with my second who began with her at 10 months old.
Lisa is a dream of a childminder - the single best find I've ever had. From the very first day in her care, my boys have been loved and cared for better than I could have hoped. She's warm, caring and always has the perfect advice when I've asked her for it!
My kids have thrived at Lisa's and I've been able to keep up with their activities, routines and meals through regular communication.
I wouldn't hesitate a moment to wholeheartedly recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking. She is outstanding.
My daughter started with Lisa & Pari when she was 9 months old and like any parent you have such mixed feelings about leaving them to return back to work, but most importantly you just want to find the most perfect environment where your child can be happy, feel safe, and have fun. From the moment we visited Lisa's home, I just knew it was the right environment for our daughter. Lisa's set up is amazing, she has a beautiful home with large open space, a separate playroom area plus an amazing large garden, which also has an outside shelter for rainy days.
It was so reassuring to know while we were at work, our daughter was having fun with all her little friends, she was busy doing lots of activities during the day, and having the freedom to choose if she wanted to play inside or outside. We also loved that Lisa and Pari wasn't home bound everyday and they always planned weekly trips to farms, the zoo or local parks/woods where she could enjoy nature and explore. We would receive updates throughout the day with messages or photo's so we could see what she was up to throughout the day and also provided with a weekly food menu which was really helpful when planning our own family weekly meals. Our daughter would always be so happy when we dropped her off and picked up, which was always so comforting to see, she loves Lisa and Pari as if they were family.
My daughter is now 3 1/2 years old and has now joined full-time nursery at Whitings Hill School. Its very exciting for her to start her school journey but we were also sad that she wouldn't be spending every day with Lisa and Pari. However, we are still lucky enough that Lisa can collect her from school which has helped massively when settling her in because she knew she was being collected by someone she is very close too (if it wasn't mummy or daddy) and she always looks forward to spending time at Lisa's with the other children.
I would highly recommend Lisa and Pari to anyone looking for a childminder, they are trustworthy, kind, caring and love for the children like their own. We are extremely grateful for everything they have done for us over the years and have made our work lives so much easier. Thank you x
My son has been with Lisa since he was 11 months old (he is now just over 2)- it’s not easy going back to work full time and trusting someone to look after your child but I can honestly say I’m so grateful to have come across Lisa. I trust her whole heartedly and my son loves the setup.
I love that he gets to go out frequently on day trips to the farm, the playground, the woods etc as well as do lots of messy play and learning activities in her house and garden.
I get regular updates on what he’s been up to in the day and am always provided with photos, menus and feedback from the day which I really appreciate when I’m at work.
I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home from home environment where I can honestly say it’s like an extended family to him! He’s made so many lovely friends there of different ages and I feel confident knowing he is so happy there.
Pari and Lisa have been taking care of our son since he was 10 months old. That was almost 2 years ago and in those 2 years they have become as good as family. We have since also had a daughter who joined them and loves the setting just as much (if not more) than my son has always done.
When I was looking for childcare for my first born, I like many new mums, was so desperately nervous and worried about having to go back to work and ‘leave’ my baby. Being new to the area, I sought out all the best rated nurseries and visited them all. My heart sank at the idea of leaving him in one room where he would be put to nap on the floor/ in what amounted to a cupboard and stay in that room all day until I came home from work to pick him up.
I came across Pari and Lisa through a combination of world of mouth and this website and I knew as soon as I walked into their setting this was the right place for my child.
I trust them implicitly and know they have a genuine affection for my children. Not only that, their setting was clean, bright and full of stimulating activities. I love that the children are ina mixed age group - the younger ones learning from the older ones and the older ones taking care of and learning to be little leaders to the younger ones. They have structured Montessori play and are taught life skills in a home from home environment.
They get taken out on trips to local outdoor spaces Multiple times a week! And that’s not to mention that when I talk to any other parents of young children, they are always astounded at how convenient and competitively priced our arrangement is.
I honestly couldn’t recommend them enough and am so grateful to have found them when I did
When returning to work 1.5 years ago we were lucky enough to find Lisa to take care of our little girl, she is amazing and by far the best! She strikes the perfect balance of offering a home from home environment all whilst providing our daughter with the early years learning she needs and provides a safe, secure, nurturing, stimulating and most of all fun environment, I feel that she genuinely cares for the children and really enjoys them. My daughter is always busy whether it's activities set up in the home, visits to the local park, willows farm, paradise wildlife park or playing in the large garden, she has so much fun and has made so many friends that she never wants to leave! The best bit is that you get updates and pics on the app throughout the week which always brightens my day when I'm at work wondering what she is getting up to. I know how nerve-wracking it is to leave your little one with someone new but I honestly cannot recommend and thank Lisa enough!
